George Strait is planning two new shows for his home state.
The King will headline back-to-back concerts on November 18th and 19th, with Tenille Townes opening the show at Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena:
George will also perform back-to-back nights at Austin’s Moody Center grand opening celebration tonight and tomorrow, in addition to a headlining date at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium on July 30th with Chris Stapleton, Parker McCollum and Little Big Town.
And he recently sat down with Pollstar, telling them the thought crossed his mind that he may never play live again… so all of these shows he has coming up make it all the more exciting (especially if you’re lucky enough to attend):
“When live music shut down due to COVID, I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to play live again. It made me really sit back and realize how fortunate I had been all of these years to be able to do that. I mean, time was passing and I wasn’t getting any younger. It was scary.
I wasn’t ready to quit. I think after we were able to come back it gave me a different appreciation for being able to perform for people.
I really, really love doing it and I’m so appreciative that my fans still love to come hear us. Like my song says, ‘I don’t know how many more years I’ve got left to do this, but I figure a few,’ it’s true.
There’s nothing like it and I can’t describe it. Not many people get to do it at this level and I feel very lucky and blessed to be one of those few.”
Tickets for the Fort Worth shows go on sale next Friday, May 13th.
The King in the Lone Star State is not a show you wanna miss…
